3x3 basketball is returning to Christchurch.
This dynamic basketball discipline, a.k.a streetball, brings the skills of 5-aside basketball outdoors in a fast-paced format that's easy to play. Entry is free and open to players of all ages. It's easy to be part of this exciting event. Just create a player profile on Play.FIBA3x3.com, reply to the confirmation email then you can register your team. It's that easy!
3x3 is played on a 1/2 court, mainly within the arc, which means lots of skill and maneuvering in a small space. In addition, there's the Sal's Pizzeria slam/dunk contest and the MAI FM 3-point shoot-out competition during the day, with prizes.
There are grades for male and female Open, U19, U17 and U15 and prizes for the winners of each grade. In addition, the winner of the Open men's grade will be eligible to compete at the World Tour Qualifier Final in Auckland on 9 March 2019, with the winner from this event receiving an all-expenses paid trip to Asia to represent their city at the World Tour Masters later in 2019. Check out the basketball New Zealand website for more information.
This event is not only fun for players but also exciting for spectators to watch, with a new game every 15 minutes on 8 courts. So, come along and be part of the action.
